    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: And the next Prime Minister will be...

    The UK, for those presently off-world or comatose, had an election yesterday. The results are being announced as I type.

    Boris has an upgrade to a full majority, he no longer needs any support from the Ulstermen thank Christ, at least there's no billion pound bribe needed by the end of the week.

    The last-ever left-wing Labour shadow cabinet is about to disband, New Labour is about to reaffirm itself, the UK is finally and regretably reduced to one single centre-ground political party and that just happens to be mine. The Common People is, as of today, recruiting candidates for the next Westminster Election in 2024. Every other party in this country is right-wing with occasional Green pretensions for camouflage, and not much of that either. The Left is dead, long live the Centrists.

    Those keeping a close eye on matters will have noticed that The Common People had a single candidate in the election this time round and it was me. I have, naturally enough, lost my deposit and garnered around five votes, but it's a start. We stand for justifiable social reform and a heavily strengthened National Space Program. Please form an orderly queue, we have five years in which to rally the nation before the next test of the political temperature.

    We are at least spared the catastrophe of a full-bore hard Brexit, Boris now has enough firepower to do without his own lunatic fringe pressing to crash out with no deal. I would imagine that by Easter the Leave voters will be baying for his blood and screaming betrayal with Mark Francois to the fore, dumbing himself down to the bone for effect.

    It would appear The Brexit Party, the English Defence League, The National Front and The United Kingdom Independence Party have all romped home with zero MPs. Well done Mr Farage, that's yet one more pint I'll buy you should we ever meet.

    Ah, some madness from across the Pond to distract us from the Twit in Chief.

    God help us all, what a nightmare and what a terrible knife edge I've had to walk having a daughter who works for the local Conservative MP, and my god that agony was long and drawn out all day today to make matters worse! Must be time they updated the way the votes are counted on the Scillies!

    I never want to repeat the last few weeks again.

    I am in a rather intense Political Debate Group on FaceBook (Political Squawkbox) which has Members from all across the Political Spectrum, making for a nicely balanced Group. But I've also been keeping a check on some other more biased Groups, such as "We Support Jeremy Corbyn". In the weeks leading up to the election they were just Echo Boxes, convincing each other that Labour was heading for a record victory, where any mention that Labour had set themselves up for a fall by betraying the Labour Heartlands which were all predominantly Leave would be met with accusations of being a "Tory Troll".

    Now, anyone who knows me knows that I am far from being a Tory Troll, having previously been a Member of the Labour Party myself, and am still inclined to Socialism. However, this time I felt I had no other option but to vote Tory due to the betrayal of the Party I had previously considered my own.

    But once the results started coming in it was hilarious to see the cries about the election having been 'rigged'. I mean, if it had been, as many expected, just a small majority, then there may have been a tiny amount of credibility, but with a situation where Labour have suffered their worst defeat ever, that takes on an entirely different scenario.

    Be under no illusions. This was nothing to do with Political Policies, it was a 2nd Referendum in all but name, plain & simple, and Labour's betrayal of the Electorate, after first having promised that they would respect the result of the Referendum & not to hold another, followed by going out of their way to thwart Brexit at every opportunity meant that the Tories didn't win the election. Labour handed it to them on a silver platter.

    I still believe that if Labour had honoured their pledges from the 2017 election, we would have a Labour Majority Government in place by now.
